Important Message For Customers:

The Ontario Government has legislated that all non-essential businesses MUST BE closed BY 12:01 am on March 25. The health and safety of our employees, clients and our community is our top priority. To do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19, our staff are working remotely until further notice.

Furthermore, our carrier, UPS, has notified us that all shipments will not be insured and will not require a client’s signature upon delivery until further notice. Given the nature of our business, we are not willing to take that risk with your investments. As a result, we are temporarily suspending all shipments within Canada until UPS lifts these protocols.

Use e-mail for more expedient service.

Please be assured that your orders will be shipped to you as soon as we can. These are valuable investments you are making, and we want to make sure we send them in a safe, secured and insured manner.

Trump Dump Coming To The Stock Market - Dave Kranzler (11/1/2017)

Trump Dump Coming To The Stock Market - Dave Kranzler (11/1/2017)
By Dave Kranzler 3 years ago 6557 Views No comments

The stock market shot up like a Roman candle for idiotic reasons after the election. The candle may have reached its apex when the Dow hit 19,999.67 last week. As I stated in my Short Seller’s Journal, I was “stunned that bank traders were unable to push the index up to the holy grail number of 20,000. Of course, in and of itself, the “Dow 20k” watch was moronic. Thirty stocks do not an economic system make. Sorry Fox, CNBC, Bloomberg, CNN etc.

I also stated in my Short Seller’s Journal, in the issue two weeks ago, and long before Zerohedge posted the comment from some guy named DeMark who predicted the Dow would never hit 20k, that 20k might not happen. In fact, I titled the issue, “Is Dow 20,000 Now Out Of Reach?”

The “Dow 20,000” financial media promotion has bordered on vulgar. Fox Business (which I keep on mute at all times) kept a “Dow 20,000 watch” banner at the bottom of its broadcast during the entire trading day for the last 2 weeks of 2016. It disappeared last week. In the context of the entire stock market and the U.S. economy, it’s meaningless for the Dow to hit 20k other than as a powerful propaganda tool.

The housing market is one of the most important segments of the economy. The DJ Home Construction Index is down 9.7% today from its 52-week high in July. Retail spending may be even more critical to generating GDP than housing. The XRT retail ETF is down 9% from hits 52-week on December 8th. This stock index has literally tanked during a period of time that is supposed to be the best seasonal period of the year for retail sales. There’s a serious message there. THAT’S where the rubber meets the road – not from meaningless platitudes and soundbytes from a President-elect.

Essentially Trump promised on election night to spend trillions and cut taxes deeply and to pay for those based on borrowing trillions. These are policy proposals that are destined to fail from the moment the words left Trump’s mouth. But the stock market went nuts to the upside, culminating in what I would argue – based on using “apples to apples” accounting comparisons – the most overvalued U.S. stock market in history. Perhaps in the modern era only the Weimar German and Zimbabwe stock markets were more overvalued. Stay tuned because I am very confident that the Fed is not done printing trillions.

The stock chart above displays a market in which I would NOT want to be invested. Yes of course this stock market could break up or down. But since Christmas, every attempted assault on 20k has been rejected. And the Dow opens higher every morning only to sell off every afternoon into the close. Monday was a perfect example.

Today (Tuesday, January 11) it looked the Dow was going to make another assault on 20k. But during Trump’s highly anticipated press conference, the Dow sold down hard from 19,970 to 19,840. That is a preview of what is likely coming in the months ahead, as the U.S. economic fundamentals continue deteriorate, notwithstanding the barrage of economic fake news coming from the Government and certain industry pimp associations.

If you like the analysis laid out above, you can get similar commentary with even more in-depth analysis and research by subscribing to my Short Seller’s Journal. I also present at least two short sell ideas along with ideas for using options.
